Old Paint

Nomad Jones

Take a trip back in time to the pre-bluegrass era with Old Paint, a Victoria duo carrying on the tradition of the famous pairings that laid the foundations of bluegrass. Before the term was even coined, duos like Bill and Charlie Monroe, Carter and Ralph Stanley, Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard, Don Reno and Red Smiley, and Jim and Jesse McReynolds were forming the basis of bluegrass with tight, edgy harmonies and simple instrumentation.

Miriam Sonstenes and Jeff Dill have been carrying on this legendary sound for more than a decade, playing classic country, Texas fiddle tunes, Appalachian old-time music and originals with guitar, fiddle and clawhammer banjo. 

Look for Old Paint in intimate workshop settings throughout the weekend.
